Budget talks for School District 58, Nicola-Similkameen were on the table again last night.

District Secretary-Treasurer Bruce Tisdale says Ministry grants for 2011-12 are going to be at a comparable level to what they are for the current year, even though there's a drop of about sixty students under projections.

The current grant from the Ministry is close to 25-million dollars, and with other revenues brought in, the budget will be in the 26-million dollar range.

Tisdale says there's another public meeting in a few weeks.

He says the Board will review staffing and other budget items before the next budget is passed May 11.
